Brand Ambassador 2010 – Salma Hayek

Mrs Pinault aka Salma Hayek was given a great responsibility this year to represent the Gucci Group.

Whilst many of the brands didn’t exactly fit her sense of style, she didn’t take the challenge lightly by favouring for the most difficult to pull off brand within the group – Alexander McQueen.

Some pieces worked, others failed quite drastically, but I think as Salma feels her way around the collections a bit more she will find looks which will suit her style rather than wearing looks because she feels she has to.

Personally I think she looked best in Gucci Premiere and YSL.

Most Consistent 2010 – Fan Bing Bing

Fan Bing Bing was a star I wrote about possibly twice a year, but in 2010 she ruled the red carpet – especially at Cannes Film Festival.

She took Cannes by storm wearing a selection of stunning gowns from a traditional dress by Laurence Hsu to Elie Saab Couture.

Fan Bing Bing went from being anonymous to one of your favourite red carpet stars of 2010.

I admire her attention to detail, her ability to make looks her own, her beauty, her style and elegance.

For some this type of perfection seems too contrived, but as long as she keeps this up and doesn’t wear a bandage dress or Trib Too’s she will always be on my Best Dressed List.

Magnifique To Tragique 2010 – Marion Cotillard

The decline of Marion Cotillard’s red carpet style has been both tragic and baffling this year.

When we first started following Marion’s style, we were all enchanted with her fascinating allure and intelligent grace.

She started the year glowing in Elie Saab Couture. She then showed us she’s has a different side to her by wearing a sublime Lefranc Ferrant metallic jumpsuit.

Towards the latter part of 2010, things started to go terribly wrong.

We tried to pass off the first violation as a one off, but the French actress ended the year on an all time low with bad make-up, bad hair and poor red carpet choices.

Best British Export – Carey Mulligan

After looking back on Carey Mulligan’s red carpet looks of 2010, I decided that it wasn’t as bad as I had originally assumed.

She had the odd look which would age her quite drastically, but she got into the swing of things towards the latter part of the year after the pressure of Awards season was over.

Carey went from appearing on ‘Who Wore It Better?’ polls with Anna Wintour, to wearing fresh young labels such as Prabal Gurung and Preen.

She also looked gorgeous wearing Elie Saab and what appeared to be her favourite label – Vionnet.
